Gum Surgeries in Barrie, ON
Because your gums are part of the main foundation and support system for your teeth, it’s important to keep them healthy. An excellent home care routine consisting of brushing at least twice per day and flossing at least once helps to keep gums healthy. Regular visits to your dentist every six months are the key to maintaining your oral health and preventing gum disease.
However, if you should find yourself in need of treatment for your gums, Dr. Joo has advanced training in gum surgeries and he can help you! Here are some of the surgical procedures for your gums that we offer at Park Place Dental.
Gum recession occurs for a number of reasons such as gum disease or repeated vigorous brushing. Recession means that your gum tissue has been lost and your root is now exposed, and unfortunately, you can never get that lost gum tissue back. This leads to a host of issues like sensitivity, pain, and even eventually tooth loss.
Gum grafting offers a way to restore the tissue with grafts taken from another source. Your own gums will integrate with the tissue over time, which protects your teeth and your roots from exposure. Dr. Joo can perform this type of surgery right here at Park Place Dental and oversee your recovery so you’ll be back on the path to wellness again in no time.
Have you ever felt like your teeth were short or stubby? Do you feel like you have a “gummy smile?” Patients who show excess gum tissue when they smile may not feel satisfied with the appearance of their teeth. The good news is that there’s a simple solution to reveal the smile you never knew you already had!
Dr. Joo can remove excess gum tissue during a simple procedure called gum contouring. He utilizes artistry as well as skill to create your new smile, and you’ll be able to share it with the world after a short healing period.
